Mr. Gallatin then said that the remarks which he had prepared were considerably extended, and as he was doubtful whether his physical strength would admit of his presenting them all at that time, he would request the Secretary of the Society to read the first twelve pages of his " dissert at i tfore the Secretary commenced, Mr. Gallatin briefly detailed the history of the map. It had been one of the numerous maps used by the Commissioners who agreed on the'?Treaty of Paris in 1783. and remained in the possession of the Hon. John Jay, one of the American Commissioners. On his death it came into the possession of his brother William, and from him descended to his nephew, the late Peter A. Jay, amongst whose papers it was found by his relatives after his death, and by them presented to the Historical Society. On this map the boundary line is laid down precisely as claimed by the United States in the negotiations which resulted in the late treaty; and the red line designating the boundary as thus defined, is marked in Mr. Jay's handwriting, " Mr. Oswald's line." Mr. Oswald was the British commissioner, and the reasonable presumption is that this map represents the boundary as agreed upon by the commissioners of the Paris treaty. This line grants more to ihe United States than was claimed in consequence 01 an error in the construction of the map, but its direction is exactly analagous to that of the boundary claimed by our government. Mr. Gallatin's remarks extended over the whole subject of the " Boundary Question," from the treaty of Paris down tothe|late treaty of Washington. He vindicated, in a very able manner, the claims of the United States, and presented a great mass of most important historical details We understand that the whole is already in course of publication by the society. It will form a very interesting and valuable portion of the history of this country Mr. "Hiiniin n iniuuinr acquaintance wiin me stlDjecr in all its details, his candor and impartiality, rendered him peculiarly adapted lor the discharge of the task which he thus creditably |>erformed. (As Mr. Webster, in the course of his remarks presented a very clear and succinct view of the bearing ot Mr. Jay's map on the questions formerly in dispute between the two governments,|we refrain from making any synopsis of Mr. Gallatin's remarks .on that subject ) When Mr. Gallatin concluded, after occupying two hours in the delivery of his " dissertation," Wm. H Lawrknc*, Esq., alter offering some remarks complimentary to Mr. Gallatin, gave expression to the request of the society that Mr. Webster would do them the honor oi making some observations:?

I will advert to two or three gener il idea*, which it i* alway* necassary to carry along with u* in any process of reasoning upon this subject. Let us remember, then, in the first place, that the treaty of *93 granted nothing to the United States?nothing It granted no political rights. It granted not one inch of territory. The political rights of the United States had been i asserted by the declaration of independence in 76, and stood, and stand, and always will stand, (great applause). The ter itorial limits ol the United States stood upon their respective ancient charter*, and grant* from the British i crown, going back to the times ol the Stuart*. The treaty I of peace of '83 acknowledged, not granted, the indepen- i dence of tha United State* (Applause) It acknow- i ledged the independence of the United States as they then existed with the territories that be onged to them as colonies. That which has since become, or af- I ter wards became the subject of dispute, was territory claimed by Great Britain on the one hand and the State of ( Massachusetts on the other. The question was the definition of the boundary be'ween England and Massachu- j setts. But as by the acknowledgment of the independence of the United States, England had put hersell in a condition to treat diplomatically with the whole Union, this matter of disputed boundary between England and the State oi Massachusetts thenceforward became a question f boundary between England and the United States; because the treaty-making power nncesaariiy devolved upon the whole Union, aa well according to the articles of confederstion, as afterwards according to the constitution of the United States. Well, then, the question was, what il or what was the boundary between the State of Massachusetts and the British Province of Nova Scotia 7 Nova Scotia did not jo n in the war of independence?did i not separate from the mother country; Massachusetts did, ] hwu iu6 4ukiuvii iiioisiuic w , mini w?d mo uuuiium y between tbem 7 Now, in order to a general understanding of that, we nun go a little back into the history of political occurrences on this continent. The war of 17/>ti brought on a general conflict on this continent between England on the one aide, and Krance and Spain on the other. From that period till the peace in 1763 which terminated the war, Spain possessed Florida, and Canada belonged to the French. By the peace of Faris in 1763, Canada an the north and Florida on the south were ceded by France and Spain respectively to Great Britain. Other conquests were made by the British power in the West Indies, and the British ministry, in October of that year, by the celebrated proclamation of the 7th oi that month, defined the boundaries ol these respective colonies thus obtained from France and Spain, and so far as the present subject is concerned, it may be enough to s?y that the British government, in issuing the proclamation of '63, defining, describing and settling the boundaries of the newly acquired province of Canada or Quebec, asserted that boundary for which the State or Colony of Massachusetts had contended for, as against France, during the preceding thirty or forty years. That is to say, that the colony of Massachusetts insisted that her territory ran to the north bank of the St. Lawrence. She claimed not to the highland*, hut over them dourn to the mouth of the river. England had never discountenanced this claim of her colony as against Franca. England then be. comingowner of Canana by conquest, deacnbed the province by the celelir.ited line of " highland!." That ia to aay .beginning at 46 degrees down to the north west branch ol the Connecticut river to the highlands.dividing the waters that flow into the Atlantic Ironi those flowing into the St. Lawrence. Massachusetts complained ofthe proclamation of '63 as taking into Canada what she had ir.su-ted on as matter of herown right. Mr. Borland, Massachusetts agent, presented it strongly to the British ministry as an invasion of the territorial right* of that Colony. It happened, ho wever, that in the interior of Maine, about the source ol a the Kennebec there was a tract ol country, to which it c was alledged the crown of England had rightful claim. c Thera grew up, therefore, a joint consent soon after the v pence of '63 between the crown ol England and Massa- n chuaetts, that if the former would lorbear to assert any i right to thia territory included within the general limits g 01 me mate or . viaino, uniiacnnii n* woum consent hy l her agent in England not to pre** the matter resp?cting 1 the boundary between that State and Canada Well, un- rj der the*e circumstance*, when the peace of 17P3 was t made, the queition waa to ascertain what waathe bonnda- a rv between Massachuaetta and Nova Scotia. It waa a 1 wilder'!'** country, and the line waa not eaaily defined? o Much historical document?the proclamation of 1763? o and all the proceeding of the government* were resorted g to. Now I suppose that the object of the Commiaaionert of ii "03 was to ascertain what was the existing line, and not to * run any new line, a* England being possessor of Canada v by conquest from France, claimed under the Freucb, and o according to general circumstances, would be bound bv d her claim*. Now it is certain that whilst the French ii owned Canada, down to the very day of ita cession to tl Great Britain by the peace of'63, the French maps, so ii far as I know, without an exception, represent thedivi- si sional line between Massachusetts and Nova Scotia ex tl HCtly according to the line contended for by us. The n French maps, which gave ano her representation, were v the production ol a subsequent epoch. It was fair, then *< fore, to say to England, "you must claim under your gran ai tors." The piovisions of the treaty of 17PS undoubtedly of meant to ascertain the fact of what the line w as a* it then th existed. Now in regard to the map now presented, suppo*. tl: the fact to he a* I take it to he, that it wa* before the Com in missioners, because it ba* Mr. Jay's memorandum upon it. ai and connecting it w ith the proposition know n to the Bri- si tish minister on the 8th ol Oct., 'Si, contain thing* w hich ti seem very fairly to be daduciblo, and the important one is hi that the northwest angle of Nova Scotia and the sources e< of therirer 8t John*, nre identically according to thin n map, and according to Mr. Oawald'a proposition. How * cornea it, then, the north western angle of Nora Scotia U and the aourcea of the St. JoLna being identical in the jt: minda of men of that day, that that idea haa not been fol. at lowed up? Well, that lead* to one of the queetioai about if IKRA UD DOWN IN THE ]V A.Y, IN 1787. l y PH !*V ;\ _ W * "\ r which it is impossible to say that any one can lay down beforehand any positive rule. These cannot proceed on the assumed truth and accuracy of a geographical deiine ation as the table before them. On the face of that paper the Madawaika was laid down as a north and south line?therefore, Mr. Oswald says, beginning at the north west angle of Nova Scotia and then reaching round, and then says the e stern boundary shall be the River St. Johns from its mouth to its source. He goes, therefore, on the idea that the souice of the St. lohns ia at the north weat angle of Nova Scotia, or else he leave* a hiatus in hii description. The fact, as stated by you, sir, is, that this delineation of the Madawaska was erroneous. It is not a north and south liver. Errors in the calculation of the longitude had led to give it a north and south direction ; whereas it should have a northwest and southeast direction ; and this error carries the map in order to conform to the lact, from forty to filly milea lurther to the west. Now, of the various questions which sue may reasonably suppose to arise in a caae oi that act, one would be whether in a caie of mutual miitake of that kind, founded on a mutual misapprehension, this error wai to be corrected, or whether the parties were to ho bound bylt.let the true course of the river he what it might ?these questions are no longer of importance to us, siuce the whole matter has been settled; but they may havetheir influence and are worthy of consideration in a historical point ol view. The conflict of these maps is undoubtedly a pretty remarkable circumstanoe. The great mass of cotemporaneous maps are conformable to the claims ol the United States, and the remarke read by the President of the Society are most cogent. The treaty negotiated in Paris under Lord , by Mr. Oswald on the part of the British Government, met with great opposition in the British Parliament. It was opposed on the very ground that it made a line of boundary "exceedingly inconvenient to Great Britain;" or as the British Minister said, that it made the United States masters both of Nova Scotia and NewBrunswick; and maps were published exhibiting this line exactly as claimeu by the United States. These maps accompanied the parliamentary papers and debates. Now it is very extraordinary?it weuld be deemed almost credible that if these maps thus making out a case on which so much stress had been laid, against the British, tad been erroneous, nobody in the Foreign Office?nor he Minister himself, nor Mr. Oswald himself could have me word to suggest against the accuracy of these maps, rhey defined the treaty end boundary as presented on the naps, not going on the ground at all that they eshibited iny errjneoua pre-entation. Nevertheless it is matter of listorical notoriety that from the time ol the conclusion >f that treaty till our day it had been impossible to bring he two Governments to any agreement on the matter ? rhat on the words of the treaty?on the lair and necessary mport ot the words of the treaty, the case is, and has sis-ays been with the United States, I very much dount if my intelligent F.nglishmsu at this day would be found -eady to deny. The argument has been not that it is pos. lible to show the line any where else?not that it is pos. iit?le to bring the North West angle of Nova Scotia his side of all the waters that run into the St. lohns?I suppose no man hardly would undertake o maintain seriously such a proposition as that? hut the argument always has been that which was successfully pressed upon the King of Holland, that there was a difficulty in ascertaining the meaning of these words ; and that difficulty led his Majesty, as difficulties if a similar character in other cases lead relerees and arhitrators, in'o the notion of " splitting the difference," er [compromising the claim?and drawing a line lietween :hat claimed by us on the one hand, and that claimed by he British government on the other. The Kogluh govs >rnment, therefore, has alwaye proceeded less upon the erms of the treaty themselves than on those external onsnleration* ; and ripeciniiy main tnat one rurivf to he great inconvenience of auc.h a line of demarcation, ind tounden upon thai aa ill natural remit, another infer'lice, the high imiwsiihility that England would have igretdto a line?unnecessarily, net through neceaai y which aoparated h r own provinces from one another, ind made the communication between them dependent in the will and pleamre ot a foreign power. The tieaty if Washington and the negotiations which preceded it, were entered into in a spirit of rompromi?e and aettlenent. When the present administration came into power, t determined, that aa an arbitration conducted with the [reateat diligence, ability, and learning, on the part ofthe Jnited State* had failed ; and that aa the matter waa likcy at all eventa to terminate in compromise, it might lie |uite aa wise for the parties te attempt to compromise it hemselvea, on such consideration* as they might see fit to idopt?rather wiser this, indeed, you must surey admit, than to re er it to the consideration f a third power, (Orfat applause) It was tip. n that principle, and in that spirit, that the n< ;ociations of 1H4-2 were entered into. It was altogethi r a that amicable and rational spirit in which one neighbor ays to another,according to the scripture?" Let us agree tilth our adversary while he is yet on the wav." Or aa ne might aupi>oae two landed proprietors would have one, whoaecontigueui estate* had inconvenient project* ig corner*?irregular lines, producing inconvenience in he management of plantations and farms. These tilings, i private life,are adjusted not on the principle that one' hall get all he can and grant nothing, or yield every birg and get nothing; but on the principle that the at a-.gemeiit shall he for the mutual convenience and adantagenf both parties, if the termsrnn he made fairard jtial and honorable to both. (Grpat applause.) Ihelievi r at least I trust with great humility that the judgment ' the country will ultimately he that the arrangement in lis case waa not an objectionable one. (Applaure ) In le first place, 1 am willing to maintain every where.th. i regard to the States el Massachusetts and Maine, thi v re better off this day than if Lord Ashburton had not gne I the treaty, and gone bark lo London with the q<i?> on atill unaettled.

At the same time that these are gains, advantages, it docs not follow that because thia whole arrangement is highly advantageous to the States of Massachusetts and Mtinn, of great im|>ortance to the United States, and particularly uaelultathe States ol New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire, thai therefore it must be disadvantageous or dishonorable to the other party to the treaty. By no means. It ia a narrow and selfish, crafty and mean spirit that supposes that in things of this sort there can bs nothing gained on oho side without a corre*. ponding loss on the other. (Protracted applause.) Su h arrangements may be, and always ahonld be, for the mu. tual advantage of all. England has not any reason to complain, hhe has obtained all she wanted?a reasons, able boundary and a fair communication?a "convenit-nt" communication and line of intercourse between her own provinces. Who is therefore to complaint Massachusetts and Maine, by the unanimous vote of all their agents, have adopted the treaty. It has been ratified by the English government. And though in party times, and in contests of men, some little dust may be thrown into the air, and tome little excitement of the political elements may be produced occasionally, yet so far as we know, no considerable fermentation on the subject exists. How far the United States consider themselves I en* fitted by it, let the votes of the two Houses of Congress decide. A greater majority, I will undertake to say, in either House, was never given in lavor of any treaty since the foundation of the government till the present tims. (Oreat applause.) With respect, sir, to the publication of Mr. Featherstonhaugh, and the tono of sundry articles in the London press about the Paris map. I hope nobody supposes, so far as the government of the United States are concerned, thst all these things are exciting a great sensation at Washington. (Laughter.) Going on the idea that either there must be a second arbitration or a settlement by compromise?finding that no arbitration which would not end in acompromise would be incceastul, the government thought it its duty to invite the attention ol the two States immediately concerned to the subject?to ask thsm to take part in negociationa about to bs entered into, with an assurance that no line of boundary should be laid down without their consent?and also to all the conditions and stipulations of the treaty. To this the two States agreed, with the limitation upon theircoDsent, that with regard to both States it should he unanimous. In this state of things, undoubtedly it was the duty ol the government of the United States, to lay before these States thus admlt'ed into the negnciations, all the in'ormation in their power Every office in Washington was ransacked?every book 01 authority coniulted ?the whole history of all the negociationa from ths treaty of Paris down ward was produced?and among the reat this discovery in Paris, to go for what it was worth. If there were any evidences in their miada to produce a conviction that it might be uaed to obscure their rights? to lead an arbitration into unjust compromise, that waa all for th> ir consideration. It was submitted as evidence, together with all the other proofs and documents in thu Past' itKn.it ?Ko o I iartxkoa# aoaoraatiAn nrt ikn nart nl tka government of the United States.

(laughter ) I will detain you, sir, by no remarks on any other part of the suhject. Indeed I had no expectation of heing called n(ion to spe*k on the subject in regard to which my own situation i? a delicate one I shall he quite satisfied if the general judgment of the country shall he?in the Urst place, that nothing disreputable to the rountry nothing prejudicial to its interests in regard to the line of boundary has been done in the treaty; and in the neat place and above all things, that a fair, honorable, manly diipoaition h is b- en manifested by the government in settling the question, and putting an end to a controversy which has disturbed the relations of the country (or AO years, not always without some danger of breaking the public peace, often with the effect of iTs'tirhing their commercial inteicourae, spreading distrust lietween those having daily dealings witn one another, and always tending to excite alarm, J alou y, and suspicion (Loud and continued applause.)
